Abstract [en]

Nurses work situation has been discussed in media for a long time. Hospitals around Sweden report on the lack of nurses and that the nurses have a difficult work situation. The purpose of this study is to gain increased knowledge and understanding of nurse's motivation. We have planned to investigate what motivates nurses in their work and to what extent social relationships are important for their motivation. The central questions in this study are which the most important motivational elements are for nurses in their work, which importance social relationships have for them, and how inner and outer motivational elements motivate them in their work. Previous research shows that nurse motivation is a relatively unexplored area. The previous research has identified, among other things, financial motivation elements, good working environment, good development opportunities and independence in work as motivational. Previous research addresses the need for more research in the field. The theoretical frame of reference has been made up of three theories which are Antonovsky's theory of kasam, Karasek and Theorell's theory of the demand/control model and Herzberg's two-factor theory. This study is based on qualitative interviews. The results of the study show that social relations are of great importance to the nurse's motivation, and we also find it important that the work is perceived to be meaningful and developing. Thus, we found that it is the outer motivational elements that are of greatest importance for the nurses motivation, however, it needs to be in combination with internal motivational elements.
